An authority who has worked diligently to get Lee County, Virginia's hospital opened once again referred to the announcement given last Tuesday as "a special Christmas gift" for the residents of the community
The announcements concerned the sale of the former Lee Regional Medical Center in Pennington Gap to Americore Health, LLC in Florida. The move had already been approved by the Lee County Hospital Authority and had been in the works for the last two years.

Citing unprecedented changes in health care that included rising costs as one of their reasons for the closure of the center in September 2013 by Wellmont Health System. Unfortunately that left our residents with the only medical care option for emergencies thirty to sixty minutes away.
